When you take part in our Ohio RV donations program, youâ€™ll be making a significant difference in the lives of our veterans who are facing hard times.
If you have an old RV that you no longer want, consider donating it to us atÂ Veteran Car Donations. We assure you that your donation will go a long way in improving the living condition of our former troops, who are called our nationâ€™s heroes for the invaluable services theyâ€™ve done for our nation.
Every year, thousands of our troops return to their families back home after getting assigned to various posts in the United States and abroad. Some of the returning troops came from conflict-ridden areas in the world where they had been deployed to defend our rights and safeguard our security. A large number of these troops were subsequently retired or discharged from the service, adding to the number of our nationâ€™s veteran population.
During their foreign peacekeeping missions, these servicemen and women experienced loneliness and separation anxieties, witnessed their colleagues die, suffered gunshot and blast wounds themselves, lost part of their limbs or vision, and developed Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and other mental illnesses as a result.
The Sorry State of Our Veterans
Following their return home, they thought that their days of danger and hardship were over. Unfortunately, many of them realized that they just jumpedÂ from one set of dreadful challenges to another. Although they no longer face armed enemies out to kill them, they have to contend with the lack of jobs suited to their military background, insufficient if not total lack of government benefits, housing woes, and other tough challenges.
Unable to find a source of income to support themselves and their families, these veterans have fallen into poverty. Some who couldnâ€™t even pay their housing rent had been forced out of their homes and became homeless. We can see them on our streets and sidewalks, begging for alms from passersby.
These are the veterans that Veteran Car Donations and our nonprofit organization partners are trying to save from destitution. With your help through your participation in our Ohio RV donations program, we can lift these poor veterans from the mire of poverty and provide them a better and dignified future.
Ohio: The Buckeye State
The Buckeye State is known for its many â€śfirsts.â€ť Ohio is widely known for having the first ambulance service, specifically in Cincinnati, back in 1865. It was also the first state in America to have a traffic light in 1914. The first man to ever walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong, was a native of Wapakoneta. In 1899, the first-ever full-time automobile service station was established in the state.
Ohio is home to overÂ 800,000 veterans. Official data showed that 8.6 percent of these veterans were unemployed and 7.3 percent lived in poverty.
The great news is that, through your Ohio RV donations, you canÂ help our veterans and their familiesÂ and uplift their living conditions.
How to Donate an RV in Ohio
Taking part in our Ohio RV donations program involves a simple and quick process.
- Step 1: Contact us.
Call Veteran Car Donations at 877-594-5822 or fill out our online donation form. Â Be ready to give all the factual information about you and the RV you wish to donate, including the year it was purchased and the time you last used it. The whole donation process will merely take approximately 10 minutes of your time.
- Step 2: Towing time
We will arrange for a licensed towing company to pick up your RV. The towing operation will not cost you anything. It will be best if you can be around on the day of pick up so we can give your donation receipt, a document that releases you from all liability on the RV you just donated from that point onward. You can now de-register your vehicle, dispose of its license plates properly, and cancel its insurance coverage.
- Step 3: Auction and selling
As soon as we have your donated RV, we will refurbish it, put it on the auction block, and sell it. Any amount that will be gathered from your donated vehicle will be used to fund the programs of our non-profit organization partners. Within 30 days after the sale of your RV, we will mail to you your 100-percent tax-deductible sales receipt, indicating your donated RVâ€™s final selling price. This will serve as the basis of your tax deduction claim when you file your itemized federal tax return for the next tax season.
How Your RV Donation Will Benefit Our Veterans
